8 weeks post op intimate question

I am 8 weeks post op and thank g-d feeling good. had laproscopic total hysterectomy. sleeping is an issue and hot flashes but not unexpected. However, we began to have intercourse again and it is so weird but when he enters it hurts but once he is in it is ok? he cant really insert his finger either b/c it hurts almost burns. i cant understand why it hurts more at the entrance especially b/c it was a laproscopic surgery. anyone else have this?

Re: 8 weeks post op intimate question


From my own experience there are several things that could cause this.

Since you had both ovaries removed part of it could because of a lack of estrogen. That will cause a sand-papery burning feeling.

Also because you had both ovaries removed it may be that you are not producing enough lubrication. I know for me I can rarely do anything without additional lubricaiton.

A third, less likely, issue that you could be having some muscle triggers that are making entry more difficult.

Lastly and least likely is that the lack of estrogen has triggered some other condition. Mine triggered a skin condition called Lichens Sclerosus and I can get tiny tears in my skin like paper cuts adn those both hurt and burn.

I'm thinking it is mostly likely one of the first 2 so you should discuss some vaginal estrogen with your Dr.. Even if you are on a patch it doesn't aleays help those tissues enough.
